a leader in mixed-signal intellectual property (IP), and Teledyne
Imaging, a leader in sensor, signal generation, and image processing,
today announced that Mixel
MIPI® IP has been successfully integrated into
Teledyne e2v Snappy
2-Megapixel and 5-Megapixel CMOS Image Sensor IC products.
The Snappy 2M CMOS image sensor combines full HD resolution in a 1 / 2.8
inch optical format thanks to an advanced 2.8μm low-noise global
shutter, with features for fast and economic barcode identification and
many industrial scanning applications. The Snappy 5M CMOS image sensor
builds on the Snappy 2M infrastructure, enabling fast, extended range
scanning and includes powerful, unique, patented features and region of
The Snappy family of sensors facilitates several applications, including
embedded industrial imaging systems, drones/UAVs, IoT edge devices,
intelligent surveillance cameras and augmented reality/virtual reality.
In addition, both the Snappy 2M and 5M sensors have identical software
and hardware requirements, enabling a complete range of scanners/cameras
at different resolutions from a single system design effort.
Mixel provided Teledyne e2v with the MIPI D-PHYSM and
controller IP. Teledyne e2v achieved first-time silicon success and is
now moving into high-volume production. The MIPI solution is comprised
of two IP products delivered fully validated and integrated, namely: a
MIPI D-PHY Transmitter and a MIPI CSI-2SM Host Controller
Core. The CSI-2 Controller IP is developed by Northwest Logic, an active
participant in Mixel’s MIPI Central Ecosystem Partnership Program, which
brings together best-of-class MIPI ecosystem stakeholders.
The D-PHY link can operate with 1 to 4 lanes, supporting 4.8Gbps
aggregate data rate. It uses a clock-forwarded synchronous link that
provides high noise immunity and high jitter tolerance.
The Mixel MIPI IP has been integrated in both of Teledyne e2v’s Snappy
products and will be integrated in other new products as well.
“Mixel’s silicon-proven MIPI IP portfolio, wide coverage of process
nodes, and outstanding IP metrics were important factors in our
selection process. Our partnership with Mixel enabled us to achieve
first-time silicon success and go into production with two different
products in record time,” said Gareth Powell, Teledyne e2v’s Marketing
Manager. “Mixel’s support during the integration phase was excellent and
the bring-up went so smoothly we hardly needed any further support from
Mixel,” he added.
Mixel’s MIPI PHY IPs have been silicon-proven at eight different nodes
and eight foundries, giving Mixel the widest coverage in the industry.
“We are delighted to see Teledyne, a new Mixel customer, achieve first
time success and go to production with multiple products, using the same
Mixel IP,” said Ashraf Takla, Mixel’s President and CEO. “It is also
exciting to see Mixel IP integrated into Teledyne’s products in market
segments addressing beyond-mobile applications such as embedded
industrial imaging systems, drones/UAVs, and many others,” he added.
Mixel will be demonstrating many of its own and its customers’ products
at MIPI Alliance’s MIPI DevCon Stuttgart developers conference in June.
